Bob was a caring soul who loved his afternoon scotch while watching the ducks and birds in his yard. He was an Army veteran and parishioner of St. Bernadette Catholic Church where he volunteered for many years. He was blessed with a beautiful family, married many years, he loved his wife and children, but above all adored his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Anyone who knew him, knew he loved the LSU Tigers, hunting, fishing, and woodworking. He now rests in the arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We love you, PawPaw.
